Brief Answer:
Please mail your reports

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
What I understood is that you have got a pulmonary embolism and you had spontaneous pneumothorax for which pleurodesis (scrubbing to collapse the lung cavity) was done.
Will you please let me know:
1) when was MRI done and since when you are on warfarin and at what dose.
2) what is your current problem.
3) will you please scan and mail me all your reports.

Waiting for your reply....

Brief Answer:
Contact lung specialist/ heart specialist soon

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for followup.
You must go for CT Pulmonary angiography to see for new onset clots. At the same seeing the background history of congestive heart failure, you must go for a thorough cardiac examination including elctro/echocardiography, to see whether you are in heart failure or suffering symptom of angina or not. If your blood pressure is normal, may take diuretics for relief.
It will be better to consult a lung specialist as soon as possible.....

Best wishes
